Did it work? Check out the video . . .
Suffice to say, I am very pleased with the results. Is this faster than push mowing the lawn? I have to get more accurate measurements to quantify this but here are a few observations:
- Against a pure head to head race of walking the mower and riding the mower, the riding will win.
- Riding the mower incurs more overlap, so it depends on your mowing route and biking accuracy to minimize overlap. Walking is much more precise in prevent overlap.
- On a hill, I was significantly faster biking. I could not get the leverage pushing the mower uphill. Biking up hill, was just like cranking up a normal hill on a bike-albeit with more drag.
Stay tuned for quantifiable results!
